Distress Ink Background using Masking and Sponging technique


create a background using distress ink

Hi all! I have used masking and sponging technique to create this card. First, I created a mask for the top and bottom using Washi tape and sponged the rest using Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint distress inks. I then stamped the butterfly image and sentiment on the colored panel. Both the butterflies and sentiment are "Direction of  Happy" stamp set from Unity Stamps.

I then removed the masks and scored three lines above and below the sponged area and mounted it on a black card stock. Finally, I added some liquid pearls and rhinestones. Hope you like it.

My special thanks to Berina (Moxie Craftie) for the wonderful Stamp Set.

Hello all! I made a long and skinny card. This one was very simple and easy to make. The idea of making long and skinny card came from Mojo Monday sketch. The finished size of the card is 3.5" X 8.5". I used Fresh Floral Stack pattern paper from DCWV. Both the flowers were handmade using EK Sucess medium retro flower punch. I used Die-Namics Fancy Flourish die on the background.

Leaves were punched out using Punch-Bunch punch. I added some Pearls and Rhinestones to finish off the card.
